Hollywood’s Star System and How it Works: From Mary Pickford to Meryl Streep
This presentation looks at the history of movie stardom — originally film actors weren’t even identified by name. Mary Pickford was “America’s Sweetheart” and the first real film star. Hollywood studios manufactured stars like Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney and Lana Turner during its golden age.
The star system changed once television came on the scene. Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep and Leonardo Di Caprio ushered in a new definition of stardom during the last few decades.
